Klean Kanteen, maker of the original BPA-free metal bottle designed for personal hydration and a leader in solutions for eliminating waste from single-use products, announced today that Michael Duffy will serve as the company's U.S. Sales Manager. This is the first major addition since the company hired Scott McGuire as Sales Director in April.

Duffy makes his way to Klean Kanteen after nearly two decades in Sales and Marketing with core, independent specialty companies. He served as Sales and Marketing Director at Rapid Media, Marketing Manager at Cypress Grove Chevre and before this as Sales and Marketing Director at Kokatat, manufacturer of premium paddling equipment. He worked in customer service at Yakima and in retail at Adventures Edge in Arcata, giving him a broad view of all aspects of wholesale business.

In his role, Michael will lead the company's wholesale growth efforts in the domestic market. Michael will be directly responsible for Klean Kanteen's U.S. rep force and will work closely with wholesale channels. In addition, Michael will also serve as point person for Klean Kanteen's ever-expanding corporate and co-brand efforts including the corresponding non-profit and fundraising components. Like all Klean Kanteen staff, Duffy will also serve as a steward of the company's mission of environmental responsibility.

“I share Klean Kanteen's deep commitment to the environment and to responsible manufacturing,” stated Duffy. “In a world filled with millions of single use containers, Klean Kanteen is one example I can show my daughter that illustrates a healthier alternative. Beyond that, the staff at Klean Kanteen really made me feel welcome. I appreciate the authenticity of the crew, the casual atmosphere and the desire of each person to make the company better. I'm looking forward to making my contribution.”

Outside of the office, Michael spends the majority of his time cycling, sea kayaking, cooking, coaching youth soccer and spending time with his family and pets. Klean Kanteen is proud to welcome him into the family and benefit from his rich sales experience to further drive the company's growth.

Since it was founded in 2004, Klean Kanteen has seen incredible growth due to the rising awareness of everyday toxins such as BPA and the environmental hazards of single use products. As an industry leader and solutions-based innovator, Klean Kanteen is striving to change the way we eat and drink.
